FORMER politician Paul Ryan has been married to Janna Little since 2000.
The pair, along with their family, reside in a suburb of Washington, DC.
How many children does Paul Ryan have?
Paul Ryan, 51, and his wife Janna Little, are parents to Elizabeth “Liza” Anne, Charles Wilson, and Samuel Lowery Ryan.
Ryan retired from his post in Congress to spend more time with his children.
Back in 2016, the politician shared a photo on Twitter of his son Samuel sitting in on a national security event just two rows behind his dad.
Both Samuel and Charles traveled with Ryan on the 2012 campaign trail when he was running for Vice President.
Ryan also shared a sweet throwback of him and his daughter Liza back in 2002 on the House floor, as he is holding her on his lap.
Where did Paul Ryan and Janna Little meet?
Ryan and Little reportedly met at her 30th birthday party, according to CNN.
They had their first date over lunch and hit it off afterwards.
Dana Little Jackson, Little’s sibling, told CNN that her sister was into Ryan’s “can-do attitude.”
“She said she thought he seemed extraordinary. She said he’s just so positive and earnest,” recalled Jackson.
“Maybe because we lived in Washington and were used to the cynical nature, but she was struck by his ‘can-do’ attitude and positive spirit.
She loved what a normal Midwestern guy he was,” Jackson added.
How long was Paul Ryan in politics?
Ryan has been involved in politics since 1997 and is a member of the Republican party.
The former Congressman began his career working in Washington DC after graduating college in 1992.
He served as the 54th speaker of the US House of Representatives for four years beginning in 2015.
Ryan was also the 2012 vice presidential nominee of the Republican Party, running unsuccessfully alongside Mitt Romney.
He was expected to blast former president Donald Trump in a speech on the evening of May 27, 2021.
“Once again, we conservatives find ourselves at a crossroads,” Ryan was expected to say, according to CNN.
“And here’s one reality we have to face: If the conservative cause depends on the populist appeal of one personality, or on second-rate imitations, then we’re not going anywhere.
“Voters looking for Republican leaders want to see independence and mettle.”
